I'll get the race report up shortly but just as a brief race recap, I finished Ironman Lake Placid in 10hrs 21mins for 25th in age group and 123rd overall (95th amateur).
No Kona for me this year! I knew I would need to go sub-10hrs for a spot and the 6th and final spot went at 9hr 59mins.
Disappointed......yes, as I hit all my markers until the 2nd half of the run when I kinda fell apart. I hit the 1hr swim and the 5hr 30min bike (would have been quicker without the 4min penalty) and then started the run on goal pace, the final 13miles were damning though!
Does it give me plenty of motivation for 2011.......yes!
- Perfect day out on the trails yesterday on the @alchemybicycles at #schaefferfarms . . . . . . #IFB #parvillacycles #MTB #xterratriathlon #mtbracing #marathonmtb
- Kind of a rough day at 6hrs at Woodstock. First 3.5 hrs were fine (even with a 10min stop for horses on the trail) and then stomach shut down. Probably related to stomach bug earlier in the week. Decided not to head out for another lap. Great trails though and a good race from Joe's Bike Shop as always. 📸: @dchammerette . . . . #6HAW #parvillacycles #mtbracing #mtbmarathon #IFB #patapsco #mtb
- Wilderness 101 2019......hot, hot, hot
- Still reflecting on @gravel_worlds from this past weekend. 150miles of primo gravel in Lincoln NE with 10,000ft of climbing. It was hard but I went for it and utimately paid the price in the last hour when I cracked, really cracked. Crawled to the finish just over 9hrs after starting.....but yes it was fun! . . . . . #gravelworlds #gravelride #IFB #parvillacycles #cycling #vandessel #lincoln
